WAMC Reaches Its $1 Million Goal in Its Last Fund Drive of 2022

WAMC/Northeast Public Radio completed its October Fund Drive on Oct. 21, 2022, raising over $1,000,000 to support the station's award-winning news and cultural programming. WAMC board and staff thank its listeners for their generosity and devotion to the station. In total, the on-air portion of the drive took less than 12 hours over the week. This is the third and final drive of 2022 for WAMC.

Continuing to be mindful of the health and safety of volunteers and staff, WAMC's Locked Box and Fund Drive were completed with the help of fewer volunteers than in the past and were supplemented with WAMC staff fielding calls and online donations.

WAMC was honored to partner with American National Insurance to contribute to The Food Pantries For The Capital District, which helped to feed over 600 families this fall and winter.

WAMC President and CEO Alan Chartock says, "We are truly in love with our WAMC family. All the people that did something to help our Fund Drive, we can't say thank you enough!"

Joe Donahue, the host of The Roundtable, adds, "We are forever grateful to the WAMC family for meeting us for two hours every day and making a lot of money in a very short time. We're thrilled to be back to regular programming and it's because of the love of our audience. Thank you, all."

WAMC is a listener-supported station that relies on contributions to stay alive. Its Fund Drives occur three times a year: February, June, and October. Each drive has a $1 million goal to support the general operations of WAMC/Northeast Public Radio. It broadcasts the highest quality programs from NPR, American Public Media, BBC World Service, and the station, as well as a wide range of award-winning local programming.
